If you are interested in recent Chinese history this small museum is worthy of a visit.

Highly interesting as you follow the rise of the Communist Party to the dominant force it is today in China. The visit shouldn't take more than 2 hours but go early, remember the... read more

All ccp museums are free! Thereafter proceed to xian tian di, French confession, walk to Fuxing park and proceed to Sinan mansion. There you will enjoy the old residence of sun Yat sen and shou en Kai. Free entrance also. Thereafter end your trip at Taikang road art center and tian zi fang.

I'm surprised that this place does not rate more highly on TA. Tucked away behind the fascinating Xintiandi area, in buildings which certainly look authentic and have been well maintained, is this little historical gem. It's very clear in its political biases, but if you look at the enigma which is China today (the world's second largest economy wrapped up... More

We first visited in Summer of 1992 - then it least it had the semblance of authenticity, 23 years later that veneer is gone, replaced by a redone "museum" that naturally and incorrectly gives Mao primacy in the diorama. A little glitz with marble staircases and a nice stop if you are going to spend (waste?) money in the XinTianDi... More

I quite enjoyed visiting here as I've just finished reading Mao Zedong's biography so I was able to recognise a lot of what was referred to. But if you're not aware of China's history over the last 100 years, much of what is said and shown here will be unfamiliar and probably not that interesting. Everything is described in english...

Highly interesting as you follow the rise of the Communist Party to the dominant force it is today in China. The visit shouldn't take more than 2 hours but go early, remember the museum has significant importance to the Chinese.

Quite small exhibition and nothing very special, easily seen in less than 30 mins. All signs and descriptions also in English which was good. Atleast in the main exhibition area upstairs numerous guards didn't care about taking photos & perhaps it was allowed? The actual tea room where CPC was founded downstairs near exit had clear signage banning photos though.... More

Birthplace of the Modern China and the Communist Party of China. Before you go in your bags will be searched and if you have any liquids, you will be asked to have a sip. You are not allowed to take photos, if you do you will have a security guard asking you to delete the photo you took. Got in... More

This is the very place where Mao Ze Dong and the others gathered to form the Chinese Communist Party, the origin of the very same politic in China Mainland. You can see the pictures and the diorama of how the meeting was, but you are not allowed to bring camera. The entrance is free, and I'm not really sure about... More

The museum is an important place to visit due to its historical and political value, especially for the Chinese people and communist party members. The museum is not big and you can visit it in 1-2 hours. It is considered as important in a political view, because there took place the First National Communist Party Congress, in July 1921.
